Gadgets: iPad-controlled Super Yacht

Looking at cool concept designs for super yachts may be fun, but nothing beats the real thing. It took five years and $15 million dollars, but the ultimate seafaring vessel that looks like a spacecraft is finally here.

The Adastra superyacht is 140 feet long, weighs 52 tons, and can travel 4,000 nautical miles at 17 knots, enough to get you from the U.S. to Europe. Designed by John Shuttleworth and constructed in China by McConaghy Boats, the Adastra can fit up to nine guests along with its six crew members. All that and you can control the vessel from your iPad. You can see more of the Cylon Raider of the sea in the gallery below.
